CROSSNIQ (NES-style demake)If the Switch remake is CROSSNIQ+, would this be CROSSNIQ−?
Y2K goes 8-bit. Slide tiles into crosses as fast as you can.
CROSSNIQ (pronounced “CROSS-nique”, like the end of “unique”) is a tile-based puzzle game where you make crosses of the same colored tile to clear them.
- Move the cursor with the D-pad or arrow keys. While holding A, press a direction in the D-pad to cycle the tiles in a row or column.
- Alternatively, use the mouse or touchscreen to intuitively control the game.
- Lock tiles can’t wrap around the field, restricting your movement options. Placing them in or next to a cross will turn them into normal tiles.
- X tiles can’t move at all. They can likewise be turned into normal tiles.
- Star tiles give you a point bonus when included in a cross. Watch out: they also disappear next to a cross.
- This version supports local 2P battles!
- “Fixed” cursor behaves like Yoshi’s Cookie, where the cursor doesn’t move along with the rotated tiles. “Moving” cursor behaves like CROSSNIQ+, where the cursor moves along with the rotated tiles.
This is a remake of CROSSNIQ by Max Krieger. Please support the original, or even buy CROSSNIQ+, the Nintendo Switch port with many more extra features!
